    What is the size of the plug? I want to get a power adapter. Thank you.
    Jennifer K on Dec 23, 2016
    BEST ANSWER: Hi Jennifer,

    While this unit is able to accept a power adapter, the adapter is not required for normal operation. If you find you need to use the power adapter for any reason, we recommend a power supply with the following specifications.

    Universal Input Voltage: 100-240VAC
    Output: 5VDC / 3A
    2.1 x 5.5mm plug
    Centre Positive polarity

    Thank you for your inquiry.
    Does this product support HDR?
    A shopper on Dec 3, 2016
    BEST ANSWER: Hello, this item currently does not support HDR. Thank you for your suggestion though. We appreciate it.
    Does anyone use this switch with a ps3? I am moving mine to a TV with only 1 HDMI port. I currently have a orei switch that won't recognize the ps3. I read that older monoprice switches had the same issue except for port 5. Just want to make sure if it will work.

    Is it possible to disable the auto-switching feature?
    A shopper on Aug 10, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: I forgot it even had an auto switch feature. My TVonly has 2 HDMI inputs so I use it for multiple HDMI devices input to my TV. i.e. Apple TV, DVD player, Chromecast, video game. I seldom power down devices and normally use the remote. I think the auto switching depends on using exterior power and although I purchased the power transformer, it's not needed except perhaps for the auto switch. Works great and I am totally in control.
    Didn't come with a power supply, does it need it?
    A shopper on Dec 2, 2016
    BEST ANSWER: Yes it needs one. I had to go buy one which didn't make me happy.
    what is the model number?
    Gary W on Jul 21, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: the only thing I can see is a PID: # 13703 the other barcode on the unit does not help. I searched using barcode and no info was found. The PID # is the product # not the model #. That's all the info on the unit.
    Does this work with the DirecTV 4K receiver? Have had issues with other brands...
    A shopper on Feb 21, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: I don't have DirectTV, a 4K receiver or 4KTV, so I'm not the one to ask, but I'm sure you can return it if it does not work with 4K. However, I can say this is by far the best HDMI switcher I have ever used.
    How to troubleshoot if auto switching not working...only manually?
    Jennifer K on Jan 4, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: I'm sorry to hear that, please feel free to contact us at tech@monoprice.com with a detailed summary of the issue you are experiencing and our knowledgeable Technical Support staff would be more than happy to assist. Thank you

    Power Adapter - Beware
    I did an on-line chat and 'live' he couldn't tell me anything more than 'standard' He said he would open a ticket and get me the required information.

    Monoprice, I have been a huge fan passionately recommending many others to you for around 10 years - you are WAY better than this...

    PROS: Pending, I'll update once I get it powered up - if I can.

    CONS: Beware there is no power adapter included - the description does state this but I missed it as EVERYTHING comes with an adapter - my fault there since they do clearly state this. The real problem is there is no spec. for what is required other than 5v. 1a. No polarity, no ID, OD or length. This leaves you unable to know what to get to make the thing work. They don't even sell anything that will work!

    Works well. HDMI 1.4 support, and supports latest apple TV, but auto-switching may be an issue
    Like another reviewer, I purchased this item replace my 401 HDMI switch. It properly supports the 1.4 HDMI standard without issues. Unlike the 401, My Harmony wasn't able to locate a known configuration for this item's remote - I had program the buttons individually on my Harmony remote.

    Another potential problem, is that I've noticed the switching doing funny things when images go temporarily black on my display - say, when a scene cuts, or something goes to commercials. This doesn't happen frequently, but I've noticed it occurring at least 6 times in the few hours of use.

    I think this is occurring because of the auto-switching feature - i wish there was a way to disable auto switching.

    PROS: 5 hdmi input
    4K support

    CONS: auto-switching makes your screen black out sometimes.

    It works
    The unit works and does not mess with the signal, so I am super happy about that. The LEDs are way too bright so I printed out labels naming the input and put over the lights. I happened to have power supply of the proper voltage and input barrel size so I provide power for the device, but it did power up with HDMI power. The remote works but sometimes takes a couple mashes of the button to make the change.

    PROS: clear video, remote control

    CONS: bright blinding LEDs, finicky remote

    Good Product
    So far this switcher has worked to perfection without a power adapter, which is good because bad power adapters appears to be the biggest problem with budget HDMI switchers. I'm hoping that not having a power adapter to go bad means it should work trouble-free for a long time. It also makes the device cheaper. FYI, if you are looking for a good quality AC power adapter I found this one which has a 2 yr warranty and look to be good quality:

    PROS: Works great without needing an AC power adapter, at least with short-length HDMI cables. I found it works with my old remote control that came with my old Monoprice switcher, so now I have two remotes.

    CONS: Of course as always the front lights are too bright so you need to place something over them if used in a darkened room.

    Great Product
    I got this to replace my old HDMI switch (HDX 401e, product ID 4088). My old switch was not able to pass through the signal from my new Apple TV.
    I ordered this one because it uses HDMI 1.4 and hoped that would solve my issue. It worked perfectly.
    I use the switch to select which signal to send to my Xbox One between an ATV4, TiVo, Wii U and Ouya.
    Everything works great together.
    The remote that came with my unit was damaged upon arrival. The little spring that contacts the battery came un-soldered.
    This wasn't a big deal for me because I programmed my harmony for it, and in no way takes away from how pleased I am with the device.

    PROS: Price, build quality. Works perfectly. Power not required, but I had the power supply already plugged in from my old switch.

    CONS: LEDs really are annoyingly bright. I used black tape to cover them and you can still see which device is active.
    Remote quality does not match the quality of the unit.

    Not a bad replacement, but not perfect
    My old Monoprice 5x1 switch was starting to die, and this one just happened to pop up on sale, so I jumped on it. While picture quality is flawless, I noticed 2 things.
    1: autoswitching isn't working for me
    2: HDMI-CEC isn't either.

    Now I did also swap out the HDMI cables as well, so they are also new, but not the heavy gauge the old ones were. I'll try with a different cable soon to see if that help the HDMI-CEC issue. Not sure what I can do for autoswitching (yes, it has power adapter)

    PROS: Cheap
    well built

    CONS: No HDMI-CEC for me
    No Autoswitching for me

    Excellent value
    I'm using it without a power adapter and its working well. For the price, fantastic!

    PROS: Does what it says

    CONS: Wish it sold with the power supply...even though not necessarily required, I'd be more assured if it was there for the cases that need it.

    Monoprice Blackbird 4k 5x1 HDMI Switch
    Received it yesterday, and it took me 2 minutes to get it up and running. I have an RCA converter box/recorder, a Panasonic Blu ray player, an Amazon Fire stick, and a PlayStation 4 running through it, I was surprised that on my initial run through of all my devices that everything worked, no need to purchase newer cables, which I did anyway. I did have a minor issue with synching this to my Harmony 650, I couldn't seem to get Inputs 1 and 5 to work, but my persistence paid off. I love that it works just fine without a power adapter, you can even power it off!!! I highly recommend this. great product at a nice price!!!

    PROS: Pros: Output and all 5 Inputs are in the rear of the unit, excellent weight distribution. Works without an AC adapter. Works fine with Harmony remotes. Should work just fine with your current HDMI cables.

    CONS: Cons: Indicator lights are a little bright.

    Well worth the Price
    I have been able to connect my computers and Roku to my 55" big screen tv via HDMI on this unit and haven't had a problem with it since I got it a month ago. Everything works fine. Be aware that his unit can also be powered by a DC 5V 1A adapter which seems to be difficult to obtain these days (It MUST BE A DC NOT AC adapter) The red lights are kind of bright if you are sensitive to it but other than that it does what its supposed to. Hifhly recommended for a budget purchase without breaking the bank

    PROS: Good budget unit
    Works well without adapter and with remote

    CONS: DC 5V 1A adapter not included

    Works great
    I have used a number of Mono Price hdmi switches over the years and all have worked great. I have one that has been going strong for over 10 years. This one appears to be no exception.
